‘Guardian Angels’ Chip in to Help Find ‘Subway Shover’ Suspect
It was a fear of many a straphanger that came true on Tuesday night at the Second Avenue subway station.
Forty-nine-year-old Kamala Shrestha was standing on the northbound F train platform after a day’s work at Think Pink Nails salon, when an unidentified man approached from behind and shoved her onto the tracks. Were it not for a group of Good Samaritans, and the break between trains entering the station, she could’ve been killed. Instead, she was saved and rushed to Bellevue with lacerations to the head.
The suspect remains at large, and cops are hot in pursuit. He is described as a “black man with a slim build who was last seen wearing a black shirt and baggy, dark pants.”
The grassroots Guardian Angels are doing their part, too. There is a plethora of “Public Service Announcement” printouts from the organization scattered along East Houston between the station access points.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782), visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
